What Avondale Parents & Students Are Saying…

“Our small community gives each child a place to become a part of something AMAZING. Avondale Schools are not just a school district, they are a family helping to mold our children into good humans!”

“I like how diverse everyone is and how there is only a little over 1,000 students – therefore everyone pretty much knows everyone…The teachers I've had have been very helpful, caring, understanding and supportive about our education and life outside of school.”

“The staff and students were very welcoming to me since I was a transfer student. The school district is very involved with everything in the community and are very friendly to everyone. Once you attend, Avondale becomes your family.”

“A small yet very diverse district and school environment. They have a full complement of sports, clubs and theater. Teachers challenge students and the curriculum offers opportunities for creative expression, critical thinking, and problem solving.”

“The Avondale School District contributed a lot to the person I am today by providing programs to help me grow both academically and personally. While in Avondale, I took many AP classes allowing me to receive credits for college, and participated in Avondale’s dual enrollment program with Oakland Community College, taking both Calculus 2 and Calculus 3 before graduating. I was also involved in many opportunities set up for the growth of students, including varsity sports, National Honors Art Society, National Honors Society, and Class board. Through these experiences I was able to grow my leadership, personal, and social skills, as well as make lifelong friends that I still have today. I have nothing but good things to say about the district and am so proud to be part of the community Avondale has created.”

"I really enjoyed my time at Avondale, and it helped me become the person I am today. From AP classes, to sports, to other extracurricular activities, Avondale helped to push me to be the best person I could be. I’d like to thank all of the great teachers who were always willing to go the extra mile to make sure I was successful. I’m thankful that I was able to be a Yellow Jacket!"
